Headlined by the running of what is widely regarded as Australia's premier weight-for-age contest, the $3 million Gr1 WS Cox Plate at Moonee Valley, there are 18 stakes races across Australia and New Zealand this weekend. First run in 1922 and named in honour of the Moonee Valley Racing Club's founder William Samuel Cox, the Cox Plate has long been regarded as the race of champions. Notable winners of the race includes turf legends such as Phar Lap (1930/31), Ajax (1938), Flight (1945/46), Tulloch, (1960), Tobin Bronze (1966/67), Kingston Town (1980-1982), Bonecrusher (1986), Octagonal (1995), Saintly (1996), Might And Power (1998), Sunline (1999/2000), Northerly (2001/02), Makybe Diva (2005), So You Think (2009/10), and of course Winx (2015/16). This year, the mighty Winx will attempt to create history by joining the legendary Kingston Town as the only horse to win three Cox Plate. The Chris Waller-trained mare is currently $1.15 with TAB to achieve the remarkable feat.
